Artist Adrian Sas augments our understanding of reality with an installation entitled ‘Source to Spout‘ in Riverside Park. by wrapping a series of panoramic photographs around drinking fountains throughout the park, Sas reveals the system of protected lands, reservoirs, and aqueducts which feeds these fountains. This new and very refreshing installation will be on view from 64th street to 148th street throughout Riverside Park beginning June 18, 2021.
Over 1 billion gallons of water per day flows from upstate watersheds to our taps via infrastructure which was originally envisioned by planners in the 19th Century. all New Yorkers depend on this infrastructure to this day, even if they are unaware of its existence.
